- Strap separation:
- Not a problem
- Cup's width:
- There is empty fabric on the sides (Cup too wide)

This underwired Sports Bra is the one I reach for when I'm going to the gym or know that I'm going to be out jogging for a while.
The center gore is designed to lay flat against the sternum but I find the 28GG is a compromise fit for my shape: it cuts in a little bit near my underarms (where I'm not filling out the side cup really well) but doesn't quite lay flat at the center (where my boobs are full/soft).
The 28 band is a tight fit but I would say only a little bit tighter than other 28s from Panache - just want you want in a sports bra. I also wear this in a 30G which is a bit more comfortable at first but isn't quite as supportive/bounce reducing when running.
The thing I like the most about it is that it doesn't push my breasts outward, and actually the shape is very flattering. Definitely wear this one as outerwear. I own it in three colours: Grey, Purple and Black and wear and love the Grey the most. It looks awesome with a white tank thrown over the top and goes with all kinds of base colours on my bottom half. Then again I tend to wear a lot of black, navy, blue and pink exercise wear.
It's the best underwired Sports bra I've tried. However I don't find it gives quite the same comfort and freedom of movement as my soft cup sports bras. I would say this is the best "gym" bra I own and it's the most comfortable to wear post-workout because the underwires and even drenched in sweat everything is separated and held in place.
One quibble on quality: I wash my sports gear with med/hot water (for hygiene) and the metallic Panache Sport logo on the front center bra band peeled off within 2 washes.
Also - running while wearing the back in its racerback configuration gave me shoulder and neck pain twinges. When worn normal bra-strap style it's absolutely fine. Love the racerback option and hope to see something this nifty in other bras, but I wouldn't use it in this sports bra.
